Fantasy Football back for start of new season

Football fans who have been suffering withdrawal symptons since the season ended in May, despite the occasional fixes of the European Championship and the Olympics, can pull their long, forlorn faces from their tear-stained copies of FourFourTwo magazine and rejoice: the Premier League is back tomorrow!

And like the gift that keeps on giving, this can mean only one thing – the return of Fantasy Football.

And on the subject of giving, the good people at Phnom Penh design firm YellowTree Interior are sponsoring this season’s fiesta of footy fun.

YellowTree are offering a whopping $500 for the league’s top manager at the end of the season, with second place getting $300 and the third best coach receiving $100 for their efforts.

And $20 will be winging its way to the Manager of the Week as reward for their impressive tactical nous.To join in, you’ll need the YellowTree League Code (1689089-411232) and then simply go to the Yellow Tree FPL 2016-17 Facebook page.

To register, send a private message with your name, email, a Cambodian phone number, and a team name. Only residents of Cambodia can register.

One manager may only enter one team (managers that are found to have entered more than one team will be disqualified).

Winners may be requested to post their comments/videos on the YellowTree page.

If all this wasn’t enough excitement for you, this season promises to be one of the most interesting ever, with the mega-money available to clubs and some of the biggest name managers in world football in the Premier League. And this is your opportunity to join them.

How will Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho fare in Manchester. Can Italian hardman Antonio Conte whip the Chelsea primadonnas into shape? And will there be another Leicester fairytale? What are the odds on Middlesbrough?
